Southwest takes second in trap at state
The Southwest High School Trap Team came home with a second place finish in the Missouri State Trap Shooting Championships on April 27 at Linn Creek.
Southwest shot a team total of 479/500 finishing behind a very good Logan-Rogersville squad.
Johnathon Wolf shot a perfect 100/100 and finished tied with four other shooters for overall honors and forced a shoot-off to determine the champion. The shoot-off took three rounds before Wolf missed a target to finish second.
Also putting up very impressive numbers for the Trojans were Ethan Still with a 98/100. Garrett Hobbs shot a 97/100, and Eric Anderson posted a 95/100.
"The weather was not conducive to shooting," said Southwest coach. We stood out in the rain and cold all day long. I was very impressed with how everyone stayed focused in those conditions. It is extremely hard to maintain your concentration when you add bad weather to the equation."
Along with Jonathan Wolf, Still, Hobbs and Anderson, the high school team included Brent Anderson, Haven Brown, Alex Cook, Hayden Fox, Taylor Gentry, Jesse Hayworth, Kordell McNabb, Tommy Sickles, and Jacob Wolf.
Middle school shooters included Michael Banks, Chance Black, Leland Colf, Charlie Henderson, Levi Moore, Jarrett Pike, Hope Robbins, Emily Snyder, Hunter Stanley, Jake Taylor, Skyler Willer, Heather Windes and Elizabeth Wolfe.
